Old Pal Yorick Smiling Again – Weird Skull Artwork

Looking into those empty eyes... Emotionless bones around a large smile striving from the depths of an unknown personality, creepy happiness carefully drawn in most cases by a row of perfectly shaped teeth. I started to wonder where the tooth fairy is when you need it...

Funky ribbons, precious stones, molded clay and metal pieces, plastic waste and an old typewriter comprise a prodigious "atlas" of human craniums, bizarre sculptures of human skulls. Rather than mastering their victims, the cobras and maggots are more like a prey worn with pride by the "skeletal remains". Imaginary worlds build up in silver as an argument for a million thoughts and post-mortem braces stay still for a no cavities afterlife.

Dreams of heavenly quiet and cold nature replace human brains and become stunning scenery on top of human-like skulls built up in silver by the Danish artist Frodo Mikkelsen. Hidden cottages and winter trees, grizzly bears as still images of the last deadly thoughts.

Sometimes not just pure, outrageous form of art, but a leit-motif to celebrate death, the constant companion from birth, a dear friend to be played with, to speak with - Dia de los Muertos, Mexico's Day of the Dead.

Barro negro pottery, literally translated "black mud," is hand-crafted in the Oaxaca region of Mexico. Black clay skulls are hand molded and wood fired in thick black smoke to create the black color, then polished using quartz pieces and covered with insects and maggots, snails and... butterflies!

A monologue. The skull of a dead court jester and Hamlet. The words Shakespeare put on the lips of the notorious Hamlet describe perfectly the vicious effects of death.

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rims at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar? (Hamlet, Act 5, Scene 1).

But this is definitely the human condition where really nightmarish art begins shamelessly. Skull Art

Brilliant Paint Brushes Art

Men at work! After almost 8 years in architecture, this is the first thing I think about when I hear the word brush.

Considering the fact that paint brushes represent the most common tools known to mankind, for many of us they are hard to be perceived items. Mainly defined by practical, versatile shapes, the brushes become like our hand extension and the vital element for placing colors in almost all areas of our life: from cars manufacturing and buildings construction to wall framed decorations and even calligraphy.

The magic wands which pass unseen give color to the world around us. And make it dynamic, bright and radiant.

Funny Mustached Paintbrush Packages - These were the first ones that came to my attention. Two simple brushes taken out of the huge variety and brilliantly packed within a simple hand-drawn face cardboard wrap. A clever packaging: the bigger brush serves as a mustache while the smaller one is adjusted to the design as a sole patch under the lower lip. Still, even if the design is pretty funny, the look on the printed faces is lost, confused, perplex. Any word you want to use. But hardly happy.

The Altered Brush Project - Wrapped in lace, covered with butterflies, thoughtfully painted. Creative and eco-conscious project of Donna Downey has transformed dozens of simple paint brushes into amazing works of art. For $15, you receive by mail a brush out of which you can make a nicely artistic decoration. Even old brushes can be more than just trash.

Paint Brush Coat Hooks - Stiffened with resin, simple brushes changed their primary purpose and became, with the help of Dominic Wilcox, a lovely decoration for hallways and coat hangers. To me, paint brushes hanged on the walls fit more inside a bachelor's apartment. :) Weird coat hanger made with paint brushes Weird Paint brush coat hooks

Pimpin’ in the Parking Lot

Just like the song says. :) I started to take driving lessons. Again! After I haven't touched a car in many years... So funny cars are back among my favorite subjects! And, of course, everything else connected to them.

Pretty, huh? :D

As we already have those insane cars, maybe it's time to search for a cool parking place in a a modern metropolis. I could find a lot of pictures of crazy, smashing car parks. The location is absolutely impressive for some. Others have an amazing architecture or artistic paintings. Mmmm... I wish I was there with my little car.

On the stage, once more

A wonderful car park inside the former Michigan Theatre. We could say it is Detroit’s stylish Italian Renaissantist parking garage, ironically built on the same site as the first automobile workshop owned by Henry Ford. After one hundred years, the site is turning to its original function, leaving behind the glorious times as an amusement marvel.

“It is not merely a theatre for Detroit. It is a theatre for the whole world. It is designed to be the great showplace of the middle west.” (Kunsky, August 1926)

Tickets for the view?

The amazing scenery makes a simple parking garage stand out from the crowd. Deeply dug into the rock, the concrete parking lots imagined by Swiss firm Peter Kunz Architektur give the enjoyment of the mountainous splendor of Herdern, Switzerland

Green is lovely

Especially if we bring into discussion the most amazing garage in Miami Beach. A few palms, some green bushes and a few plants crawling the walls in search of light - a wonderful terrace in the middle of the city. It's hard to believe it can hide a simple parking.

Photovoltaic Carport

And because we are at the green chapter... Last year, there were some rumors about some fascinating power generating parking lots that were going to form a 10 megawatt photovoltaic carport for Aramco headquarters, in Saudi Arabia - the world's largest parking of this kind. I wonder if the project became a reality...

The Amazing Tromp L’Oeil Art of Eric Grohe

And because we are talking about illusions, it is impossible to ignore the Cornerstone Square Parking Garage, Canton, Ohio. A true marvel. A simple building completely transformed by painting its exterior with three dimensional images. A work like this demands talent, imagination, experience and Eric Grohe has them all. More about the technique...

Before... and after.
